Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This is the first book to provide a detailed account of the evolution and social significance of a West African popular music. The author describes the origins of Juju in the colonial capital of Lagos during the early 1930's and follows its development through Nigerian independence and the oil boom years of the early 1980's.

Format: Paperback
This is a good study of Juju and an essential read for anyone who likes the genre. Those interested in international pop music will probably also find it worthwhile.
I would have liked to see a little more analysis of the actual music, but that's really my only negative comment - and the chapter which breaks down a juju performance piece by piece is one of the finest works of ethnomusicology I've had the pleasure to read.
